Lets write them Down
  • Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at
    Dominican University in California, did a study
    on goal-setting with 267 participants. She found
    that you are 42 more likely to achieve your
    goals just by writing them down.

How to do a written List
  • THE BEGINNERS GUIDE TO GOAL SETTING by Michael
    Hyatt
  • http//michaelhyatt.com/goal-setting.html

Keep them few in number. Productivity studies
show that you really cant focus on more than 57
items at any one time. And dont try to cheat by
including sections with several goals under each
section. This is a recipe for losing focus and
accomplishing very little. Instead, focus on a
handful of goals that you can repeat almost from
memory.
10
What to Do and Not to Do
  • First! Go ahead and Write them down.
  • Review them frequently!
  • Caution Be selective about what you share and
    who you share it with!

Working Hard with No written goals
Why You Should Be Writing Down Your Goals by
Ashley Feinstein, Forbes.com We hear a lot
about the importance of goal-setting, but most of
us dont have clear and measurable goals to work
towards. Even fewer of us actually have those
goals written down. Lewis Carroll says, any road
will get you there, if you dont know where you
are going, but how important are goals really
and if they are vital, how can we make them most
effective? There was a fascinating study
conducted on the 1979 Harvard MBA program where
graduate students were asked have you set clear,
written goals for your future and made plans to
accomplish them? The result, only 3 had
written goals and plans, 13 had goals but they
werent in writing and 84 had no goals at all.
Ten years later, the same group was interviewed
again and the result was absolutely
mind-blowing. The 13 of the class who had
goals, but did not write them down was earning
twice the amount of the 84 who had no goals. The
3 who had written goals were earning, on
average, ten times as much as the other 97 of
the class combined! While this study only looks
at earnings to quantify success, I still find it
to be an extremely motivating example of why
creating clear and measurable goals and writing
them down is a key to success. Feeling motivated?
Here are four steps to creating clear and
measurable goals that will lead you to huge
success. Source http//www.forbes.com/sites/85bro

SUCCESS
  • An article by The Huffington Post explains why
    visualisation works
  • When we visualize an act, the brain generates an
    impulse that tells our neurons to "perform" the
    movement. This creates a new neural pathway --
    clusters of cells in our brain that work together
    to create memories or learned behaviors -- that
    primes our body to act in a way consistent to
    what we imagined. All of this occurs without
    actually performing the physical activity, yet it
    achieves a similar result.

A quote from Kristina Kirilova a member of Quora
commented the below statement perfectly. 1
Factor for achieving success is to visualise your
goals and write them down!
